There are a few surviving Hungarian census records. Those that do exist are helpful: 1715, 1720, 1728, 1747, 1770 (nobility only), 1828 (all those with taxable property, excluding nobility), 1848 (Jewish only), 1857 (mostly Budapest residents) and 1869.
Where the census records do not exist, tax lists and directories can help list inhabitants and form census substitutes. The post 1828 Hungarian census records are available at the Family History Library.
